High School Technology/Engineering Test The spring 2007 high school MCAS Technology/Engineering test was based on learning standards in the Technology/Engineering content strand of the Massachusetts Science and Technology/Engineering Curriculum Framework  (2006). These learning standards appear on pages 92–95 of the Framework . The Science and Technology/Engineering Curriculum Framework  is available on the Department Web site at In Test Item Analysis Reports  and on the Subject Area Subscore pages of the MCAS School Reports   and District Reports , Technology/Engineering test results are reported under the following four MCAS reporting categories:  Engineering Design  Construction and Manufacturing  Fluid and Thermal Systems  Electrical and Communications Systems Test Sessions The MCAS high school Technology/Engineering test included two separate test sessions, which were administered on consecutive days. Each session included multiple-choice and open-response questions. Reference Materials and Tools Each student taking the high school Technology/Engineering test was provided with a plastic ruler and a Technology/Engineering Formula Sheet. A copy of this formula sheet follows the inal question in this chapter. An image of the ruler is not reproduced in this publication. Each student also had sole access to a calculator with at least four functions and a square-root key. The use of bilingual word-to-word dictionaries was allowed for current and former limited English proicient students only, during both Technology/Engineering test sessions. No other reference tools or materials were allowed. Cross-Reference Information The table at the conclusion of this chapter indicates each item’s reporting category and the Framework   learning standard it assesses. The correct answers for multiple-choice questions are also displayed in the table.
